ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- The South Atlantic Conference announced its AstroTurf Women’s Soccer Players of the Week for matches played during Sept. 10 through Sept. 16. Catawba’s Jovana Sanchez garnered the Offensive Player of the Week award, while Carson-Newman’s Jackie Burns was named Defensive Player of the Week.
 
A sophomore midfielder from Hickory, N.C., Sanchez led the Catawba Indians offensively to a 4-1 league-opening win over Newberry in their lone contest of the week. She scored the game’s first goal and assisted on the next two to finish with four points. This is Sanchez’s first Offensive Player of the Week honor.
 
Burns, a native of Cookstown, Northern Ireland, led the Eagles to a 1-0 shutout win over regionally-ranked Lenoir-Rhyne in a conference match last week. The junior saved all four shots that she faced, while tallying yet another clean sheet. Burns is now second all-time in SAC history in shutouts with 26 for her career. This is Burns’s first Defensive Player of the Week award this season.
